Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

Original lesson By: Emir Hot
Name of Lesson: Robben Ford Style Blues
URL: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...rd-style-blues/

Comment: I used a Canon Power shot for the video which produced an AVI
file, and with two takes on this file I sought to splice the video in two. I found
no other way than to use the Windows Movie Maker, which upon converting
the file to the WMV format diminished the quality of my sound even further.
I am in desperate need of some new software - until then I will carry on...
But no excuses, you can hear the notes - any advise will be welcome. I chose
to submit this etude because it was the first lesson I learned here at GMC. smile.gif

About your playing: Great job, the sound is not really good, but as you said, I can hear everything and I like what I hear wink.gif And about the software, most of us here use Sony Vegas, you should try that one, perfect software for video editing.

Amps: Mesa Boogie Tripple Rectifier / Triaxis / 2:90 Poweramp / Rectocabs

Very very good playing, well controller and executed with a good sense for rhythm. The thing that needs work is the vibrato, and the sound could be a bit better (guitar is too quiet).

You need to use some DAW for this and sync with the video. We can hear the notes but the sound should be better. Anyway very good job. I would just advise that you cut the notes short as Robben does all the time. I explained this whole lesson in my MTP thread. Check this video and maybe you can pick some useful things. Good job anyway
